Earth Day Activities and #Hop

Here is how we will be celebrating Earth Day at the Zoo.  In the Garden, playing outdoors and creating by recycling or reusing.

Our first activity is a container garden made from an old cow trough.


This little lady was a big help!

We also planted blueberry and blackberry bushes .

If you missed our post from the Egg Carton Challenge we also created an egg carton seed tray, and some Earth markers for our garden.

We made a watering can from a gallon milk jug.  Super easy just poke holes in the top and its perfect for little hands to help in the garden .


We couldn't have a celebration without breaking out the paints. 

We made a finger paint Earth and we reused a priority mail box.  I just cut
a circle out for C to paint on. 

Our Earth Day Masterpiece

He loves to paint!

& we plan on going to see Disneynature's Chimpanzee
in Theaters April 20th.  For every ticket sold, a donation will be made to the Jane Goodall Institute to care for orphaned chimpanzees, protect their habitat and educate the next generation.

Here are the Wonderful Kid Friendly Blogs participating in Earth Day Celebrations.  Hop Around and Find some great ideas for  your family.
